Default Hyundai Ioniq @ Auto Expo 2018

Big shoutout to khan_sultan for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

The Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Ioniq Hybrid have been put on display at the Hyundai stall.

Let's take a look a the Ioniq Electric first:

A quick look at the specifications:
Hyundai Ioniq @ Auto Expo 2018-dsc00605.jpg

The Ioniq comes in three variants - Full-electric, Hybrid and Plug-in Hybrid. The pure-electric version has a grey plastic fascia sans the grille and orange accents. It gets twin-projector headlights:

The Ioniq has a coupe-like side profile:

Grey bumper inserts and wraparound tail lights on the Ioniq Electric. Also note the split rear windshield:

The electric version gets unique 5-spoke alloy wheels:

The interior looks pretty conventional except for the centre console which has drive mode buttons instead of lever:

Here's a closer look at the centre console. The circular thing is the ash tray:

Here's what it looks like under the skin:

The large black box houses a 28 kWh battery pack:

The electric motor along with a reduction gear and an Electric Power Control Unit (EPCU) is placed in the front:

The electric motor produces 118 BHP and 295 Nm of torque:

The reduction gear increases the torque to 310 Nm:

The EPCU consist of an inverter, DC-DC converter and a vehicle control unit:

On-board charger converts 230 V to DC:

Here's how the system works:

Regenerative braking can be activated using the paddle shifters:

Now, let's take a look at the Ioniq Hybrid:

It has a similar front end except that it gets a gloss black front grille and fascia. Also note that the Hybrid version has blue accents and a single projector light:

Rear end styling is similar to the electric version however it gets black bumper inserts and a 'Hybrid' badge:

A closer look at the rear end:

Again, these 5-spoke alloy wheels are unique to the hybrid:

The interior is identical to the Ionic Electric, except it gets a conventional shift lever instead of buttons. The dashboard has blue accents on the air-conditioning vents, centre console and seats:

It has a foot-operated parking brake. Also note that it comes with a knee airbag:

The traction control switch and a button to turn off the blind spot monitor is placed next to the steering wheel:

Rear doors open wide:

Here's a look at the 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that makes 104 BHP @ 7,500 rpm. It comes paired with a 6-speed dual-clutch transmission:

Ioniq is giving the Prius serious competition worldwide and I hope Hyundai launch it here to continue the trend. However - at those prices, it would only be another brand building exercise.

Tushar K, many thanks for the photos and the data. My next car change slated for around 2019 or 2020 will be an all-electric or plug-in hybrid. When serious players (in the Indian context) like Hyundai, Maruti & Mahindra are looking at the 'e' factor we know it is only a question of time.
